Another Sweater That Doesn’t Fit…

Hello!

This week I have a couple of finished projects, and a couple of works in progress.

Finished Objects:

I finally finished my Ingenue sweater by Wendy Bernard:

I used Jill Draper Makes Stuff Empire in a lovely purple color, on size 8 needles.  I think the sweater looks great on the dress form, but unfortunately it does not look good on me.  It’s too wide and boxy, and a bit too short.  I haven’t had the best of luck with knitting sweaters that actually fit right and look good on me, but I haven’t knit very many yet.  They are getting better as I knit more of them, so I’m hoping one day to get the hang of it.

My second finished object for the week is my third Wingfeathers Shawl by Cal Patch:

I crocheted this in Jill Draper Makes Stuff Esopus in the Remembering Eleanor and Common Heather colorways, on a size E hook.  I obviously love this pattern, since I’ve already made three of them!

Works in Progress:

I started the Heaven and Space shawl by Martina Behm:

I’m using some of my handspun yarn, which is about sport weight, on size 5 needles.  Sara, of the Knottygnome Crafts podcast is having a handspun shawl knit along, and I’m hoping to finish this in time to enter it.  If I do finish it, it’ll be the second shawl I’ll enter in this KAL.

Today I started a pair of socks for my husband:

I’m just doing a basic sock pattern on size 2 needles.  The yarn is Plymouth Yarn Diversity.  This is the first time I’m using this yarn, and it feels really soft and squishy.

Books:

I finished reading Things I Learned From Knitting (whether I wanted to or not) by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee.

I’ve read several of her books now, and I regularly read her blog.  Her knitting stories are entertaining and funny.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
